51' projection tv(Hitachi 51G500A)

We have a cracked outer screen on this tv, it looks like plexy-glass. Is it possible to repair it myself, I checked with some repair shops and it would cost around $600.-$800., not sure I want to spend that much. This tv is under three years old. Please advise, thank you.

The Hitachi part number for the screen assembly for the 51G500a is KR02844. You can call a Hitachi parts distributor and see for yourself how much those things cost, but I warn you they are not cheap!

I need to replace the dust cover on my Hitachi 53SDX01B

the problem here is Hitachi usually if it still has it sells all three screens as a unit---expensive.

You may want to search with GOOGLE the internet as some companies sell replacement "protective" screen replacements.

I have even seen one time someone found a piece of plexi-glass and had it cut to the exact size and thickness for a replacement.

Hitachi 51G500A and the screen when blank

Hi I am vortash I have just looked at the service manual for this set and it actually does not use a bulb as it is not an Lcd or DLP projection TV . It actually employs three CRT based tubes that produce the picture with automatic focus and convergence systems . If you do not have the manual for this set you can download it from free of charge It says that if you have sound and no picture turn the set off and unplug it for 3o seconds then replace plug and turn on from switch on set not from the wall plug switch .. as this may reset the tv and cure the problem .. hope this helps regrads Vortash

I have a 51in Toshiba that nees a protective screen.

The plexi glass if a "special formulation" and costs around $350 if available!. I would go to some repair shops and see if they have old junker sets (city dump) that you can get the screen and if you have to cut it to size.. Cheap fix...
please rate!

How do I remove the outer protective screen on my Mitsubishi WS-55315?

There are trim pieces around the edges that can be removed by sliding a knife underneath and lightly prying. They should remove fairly easily, don't force them as they may break. Use the knife on the cabinet side and pry toward the center of the screen.

The tear on the inner screen may be best left as is.

lexan would be better than plexi as it is tougher, but try to get anti-glare if possible. Anti-glare plexi would be better than regular lexan.
